Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Hijacking a bad thread for a good purpose

I probably wrote this already somewhere. Waaay back in 1972, a very hissy, slightly fast copy of the 4-14-72 tape made it into my greasy little hands. Just the Good Lovin segment. At that time, all I knew was that Pig had "retired." Not knowing what came afterwards on that tour, I listened to the tape and I heard the clear cry of an anguished man--a man in pain. Little did I know. When he died, I got drunk (I rarely did then and never do now--not my thing) and played that tape several times (quite a few friends joined in). It seemed as if it were actually a swan song of sorts--a last yawp, and a fine one at that.

I cannot praise that version enough. There is no better Pig, and there aren't many better Dead jams--plenty as good, perhaps, but few better. God how Jerry moans with Pig, and Keith's piano chording also seems to carry a somber urgency to it.

Any who hasn't listened to this tape--you're going to hell.

This is your shot at redemption.

As for hijacking a bad thread for a good purpose...goddamn right! Roses from fertilizer!

C'mon, ye sinners, belly-up to the altar & get right with God...

In the name of religious diversity:

And, yes, I know I left the Vince-era out. I can't speak intelligibly enough about it...but y'all have got my attention. Someone turn me on. Blow my mind.

And maybe, perhaps that's what we should do about suckee & his ilk: rather than flame the peckerhead or even ignore him, just STACK the responses with monster show-links.

Fuck flaming, I just need a good Dew...

Peace.

mudcatz:

if you like the 10-12-84 Dew, then if you haven't already, check out this Dew...and speaking of rabbits, Jer's solo between the verses of Scarlet just keeps going, and going, and going...

Geee-zus, you weren't kidding! Thanx for that!

I had a blast in '83 & am now scratching my head wondering why I'd been completely ignorant of this show till now. Sheltered life, I guess.

Thank you!
